Seriously, why do I keep seeing owls everywhere lately? Not real ones – drawings, pictures, cards, teapots, cookie jars, purses – owls are IN this season it seems. Ever since I did the whimsical drawing I see owls everywhere.
I couldn’t resist buying this at the cutest little gift shop in Port Noarlunga yesterday.
First reason, it’s red – I like bright red (except if its sunburn, which I also bought home with me). Second reason, it has more places to put those pesky plastic cards. Third reason – owls. I liked the owls. I’m disturbed they have no tails but I like them anyway. I’ve been sucked into the owl frenzy it seems.
So the owl purse inspired this…
What I’d like to know is why owls are referred to as wise when most of the ones I’ve seen lately (again, not real ones) look kinda daft, sleepy or shocked? If they are “wise old owls” why are they portrayed as comical, dopey looking birds – mostly without tails?
Random post I know, but I’m pleased that I finally managed to doodle in less than 30 minutes! Enjoy your Monday!
